Batch video editing from the command line

GUI Video editors are great for one-offs but very time comsuming when you need to repeat the same video process to multiple videos.

There are several very powerful free software command line utilities that can be used for scripting those repetitive tasks.

I started investigating using them to edit my presentation videos consistently and, althogh I found that the learning curve is steep, one can start with cookie cutter recipies and evolve from there.

Bandwidth Statistics and Traffic Control

These days a lot of people spend a lot of time on the Internet and much of the time, we are sharing a single connection with more than one other person.

Perhaps wanting to limit those who are using an unfair proportion of the bandwidth?

With the plethora of tools that are available for bandwidth statistics collection, and the handful of tools that are available to handle traffic control, what works for you?
